Perception is based on consciousness. There are four states of consciousness: waking, dreaming,...

The modern 'new age' or 'neo-Advaita' movement disrespects the sacred tradition. They don't accept scriptures, gurus, lineages, external rituals or spiritual principles of any kind. They unceremoniously declare themselves to be god, so they think they can simply do whatever they want, and refuse to take instruction from anyone. Of course, that is nonsense.

After being defeated by Lord Rāma, Paraśurāma is passing thru the forest on the way back to his hermitage in a state of deep humiliation and repentance. In this vulnerable mood he meets a strange avadhuta. He cannot determine whether the man is a saint of a madman, so he tests him. This leads to a most amazing conversation, one that blows Paraśurāma‘s mind and leads him to the next stage of his journey. Samvarta spoke: “ O Bhargava! You asked me who I am? Listen to this. If you have...

This section contains courses and videos about the  heart  cakra  and the practice of  bhakti-yoga . When sufficient  puñya  or good  karma  is accumulated by practice of the  rituals  and  duties  of  karma-yoga,  one gradually develops  spontaneous attraction  toward the object of one’s worship.

Bhāva means ecstatic transcendental emotion in relationship with God or the Self. In dualistic consciousness, we conceive of God as a separate individual ( anya-bhakti ), In nondual consciousness, realizing the Self as All, we view phenomena as conditioned illusion covering the substrate of the Self ( ananya-bhakti ). In either case, everyone has a relationship with God or the Self at all times. Whether we are aware of it or not, we all experience transcendental emotions. Thus everyone feels...

Back in 2017 after observing that our viewers were not understanding the higher teachings based on consciousness, we decided to introduce the teaching of kārma-kaṇḍa , or yoga based on action. We selected the Śrī Vidyā or Goddess worship, because it spans the entire range of yoga from lowest to highest. And also we like it.

Spiritual and karmic merit ( puñya ) is like a bank account. Once we have sufficient balance, detachment, concentration and meditation are easy.

Karma  means the results of work. There are 3 phases of  karma: sañcita  (gathering),  agamī  (saved for future) and  prārabda  (ripening). Ordinary  karma  is routine work done according to Vedic injunction, resulting in enjoyment and suffering in future births.  Vikarma  is sinful work against Vedic injunctions, resulting in lower birth.  Ugrakarma  is unnecessary work, resulting in going to hell.

The Daoist religion was created out of a mixture of traditional scholarly Daoism and Buddhism. Since that time, Buddhist and Daoist Qigong have been considered among the greatest achievements of Chinese culture. Your internal energy (Qi circulation) is...

This section contains courses and videos about the sex and  energy-storage  cakras . Vital energy— prāṇa, Chi  or  Qi —is life itself. This energy is stored in the  second  cakra,  just below the navel. Techniques like  prāṇāyama  and  Qigong  collect and concentrate the vital energy.  Increasing  and  optimizing  the vital energy is required for  robust health  and  success in meditation .

Integrity is based on the principle of truthfulness : keeping one’s word. Integrity has to be based on something real ; thus integrity cannot refer to a corporation, religion, nation-state or other abstraction . Integrity is meaningful only in the context of an individual : ‘a man or woman of integrity.’ Integrity is how to live with a clean conscience . Being Integrity  is going to be a series—quite an extensive series, I think—about integrity and the Buddha’s teaching .  Now...

The default quality of being in the world is anxious inauthenticity due to care about the world. The individual is misled into accepting values and choices from the Other and neglecting his own. However, following the experience of objectless anxiety to its root leads to the realization that death or nothingness, which is most one’s...
